Celina delighted for experienced duo

Bersant Celina is delighted to see experienced duo Wayne Routledge and Nathan Dyer making an impact for Swansea City.

The wing duo were handed recalls to Graham Potter’s starting line-up at Brentford, and marked their first action in over two months by having a part in all three of the Swans’ goals in a thrilling 3-2 triumph.

They retained their places against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend and impressed again, with Routledge scoring the winner from a Celina assist as the hosts came from a goal down to win 2-1.

Kosovo international Celina – who scored the Swans’ equaliser against the Owls to register his third goal of the season – only moved to the Liberty Stadium from Manchester City in the summer.

But he is well aware of what Routledge and Dyer – the two longest-serving players in the first-team squad – have done for Swansea City and he is pleased to see them performing well.

“I had heard about Wayne Routledge and Nathan Dyer before I came to the club and the impact they have had here over the years,” said the 22-year-old.

“They have been amazing and I am so glad to see them playing again. They both work so hard in training. They are very talented players and bring good experience.”
